    Book Description:
    This cinematic picture book from critically acclaimed author and illustrator Evan Turk follows the life of a baby whale from birth, to song, to silence, to a new song of compassion and hope for a brighter future.

    Two hearts, one song.
    A young whale and her mother sing together.
    Heartbeat.
    Then the mother is gone.
    One heart, one song.
    The young whale swims, alone and lonely,
    for days and years and decades…
    until one day a little girl hears her and joins her song.
    Together, they sing of hope for a brighter future.
    One world, one song,
    one heartbeat.
